The eucharistic theology of Rowan Williams

Research output: Book/ReportBook


This book explores the eucharistic theology of the significant Anglican theologian, Rowan Williams, presently Master of Magdalene College, Cambridge and formerly Archbishop of Canterbury. Williams' work is firmly centred on moderate realist philosophical assumptions as he argues for the real presence of Christ in the Eucharist where Christ is seen to 'pass over' into the bread and wine of the Eucharist. Williams' work is distinguished by its philosophical and theological sophistication but it also contains a gentle and beautiful description of how when we receive the bread and wine of the Eucharist we are nearest to the very heart of what it is to be a Christian and to be the Church. This book reviews several of Williams' major publications which discuss the Eucharist and sets his eucharistic theology within a framework of moderate realism.
